A Modern Day Love Sonnet

My heart thumps but not from being nervous.

Do I have a chance? This world is so wack

Sometimes it just makes me get so curious.

I don’t think I’ll survive. I need a hack.

My head feels like it is about to rup-

ture like volcanos, spin like tornados

Why is everybody here so messed up?

I honestly feel bad and pity those

Who tries their best and ends up as broken.

This world breaks ’cause of people’s bitterness

“Love makes the world go round?” they are jokin’

We must find someone and love them endless.

The world is a crazy, terrible place.

And that is why my heart will always race.
